Metal ore mining in Europe Mineral Processing

Nov 01, 2018 Garpenberg (Fig. 17) is considered the most productive zinc underground mine in the world. In 2017, the mine output was 2.63 Mta of ore, with lead, copper, gold and silver being produced in addition to zinc. The Tara Mine in Ireland is Europe‘s largest zinc mine. The ore is extracted there from a depth of about 1000 m (Fig. 18).

Copper reserves and resources according to the US

Copper is naturally present in the Earth’s crust, at a concentration of about 67 parts per million. While most mines operate with copper concentrations of between 0.2 and 0.8 %, some of the richest ore bodies, located in central to southern Africa, can contain 5 6% copper.

Peak copper Wikipedia

In the US, more copper is recovered and put back into service from recycled material than is derived from newly-mined ore. Copper's recycle value is so great that premium-grade scrap normally has at least 95% of the value of primary metal from newly mined ore. In Europe, about 50% of copper demand comes from recycling (as of 2016)
